About me

I am an ex secondary school teacher and have been working in the disability sector for the last 12 years. Currently I have a position as Transition Project Manager developing structure and processes for the transition of students with a disability from secondary school into independence and adult services.

    Kia ora Mark and welcome to the VLN.

    I am part of the online team and we are here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have joined a group already; maybe I could suggest some other groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You have already joined the Enabling e-Learning group. There are several more e-learning sub-groups you might like to join too for on-going conversations.

    Each fortnight we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, /blog/group/118255/all

    If you want to know more about VLN/Enabling e-Learning community groups, you can view this webinar recording >>> http://bit.ly/1eQTLXD

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Nathaniel.
